"In January of 2020 I put my Park Avenue apartment up for sale.  It was the first time I ever sold a property.  I was referred to Deanna Kory and from the moment she and her assistant Cindy Kitch came to see me, I felt that I was in safe, professional and competent hands. I knew nothing about selling a cooperative apartment. Both Deanna and Cindy were extremely kind and most knowledgeable and explained the process of staging & were always available when I had concerns or needed answers to my questions. It was a difficult time since Covid was at our doorstep. However, Deanna and Cindy didn’t stop.  Even though bringing buyers into the building was not allowed, they were in contact with buyers who were interested once they saw the apartment online. It was a very tense time but Deanna and Cindy were always available to help me through the process. So needless to say, I was extremely satisfied with Deanna and Cindy and would recommend them 100% to anyone who needs a “quality” team to help them sell a property. "

"Deanna is a professional in every way. She knows her market to perfection, and, even years after our transaction, remains an invaluable resource for any real-estate decisions we need to make. We would recommend her to our closest family members: a rarity in NYC real-estate. "

"In January of 2020 I put my Park Avenue apartment up for sale. It was the first time I ever sold a property. I was referred to Deanna Kory and from the moment she and her assistant Cindy Kitch came to see me, I felt that I was in safe, professional and competent hands. I knew nothing about selling a cooperative apartment.

Both Deanna and Cindy were extremely kind and most knowledgeable and helped me through the process of the forms I had to sign and everything that was going to happen in order to sell as quickly as possible. They explained the process of staging & were always available when I had concerns or needed answers to my questions. They always called back immediately.

Almost immediately after having the apartment staged, Cindy brought in the first clients. It was a difficult time since Covid was at our doorstep. Cindy had a serious buyer but then came the lockdown and everything stopped. However, Deanna and Cindy didn’t stop. Even though bringing buyers into the building was not allowed, they were in contact with buyers who were interested once they saw the apartment online.

Finally when the building would allow buyers to view the apartment, Cindy kept me aware of all the clients who wanted an appointment. Then, “voila” a deposit was given! We were on the way to a sale. It was a very tense time but Deanna and Cindy were always available to help me through the process and they recommended a lawyer that was necessary for the closing. When a date for the closing was slow to come, they pushed (gently) to the management company and finally we got a date.

Just before the closing, since I was not going to the building anymore, I had forgotten to take the bronze nameplate that was on my front door . It was very sentimental & I asked Cindy how I could get it. She immediately answered, “not to worry, I will take it off for you and drop it at your building.”

So needless to say, I was extremely satisfied with Deanna and Cindy and would recommend them 100% to anyone who needs a “quality” team to help them sell a property.

Thank you both again! "

"We hired Deanna initially after our original broker failed to sell our apartment in an adequate amount of time. Deanna was really thoughtful in helping us develop a strategy to reposition the marketing effort and in a relatively short time, produced a buyer who we closed with. We asked Deanna to help us find an apartment when we moved back to the city a few years later. Again, Deanna listened closely to what we were looking for and showed us a number of reasonable candidates. We finally chose the apartment that, ironically, was the first home she showed us. We think she’s great and recommend her unconditionally."

Blair Rosenfeld
Partner at RFH Consulting

"We have worked with Deanna on two occasions looking for apartments in NYC. Once after we moved back to the city from overseas and another time while living overseas and looking for a different apt. Deanna is a wonderful and knowledgable agent and a pleasure to work with. She is excellent at what she does and has a great staff. She is intelligent, kind, honest and reliable. She understands your needs and does not try to pressure you to make a purchase. She truly wants you to be happy with your purchase decision and pay the best price. I trust her opinion and highly recommend her."

Julie Kohn

"I just wanted to tell you how truly fantastic everything looks- kitchen itself, the whole place, the pictures and the brochure-just amazing- want to move back into my palazzo! Deanna and Lynn, every day we acknowledge how very much above and beyond you have had to go on this project and I just wanted to thank you again and to tell you that no one could have done a better job, regardless of the eventual outcome. I know that you didn’t anticipate taking on the tasks of general contractors, designers, purchasing agents and all of the other roles you have played thus far, and wanted you to know that we realize that you have had to spend so much time and energy on this project, and to tell you that we greatly appreciate the extent of your commitment. Deanna, thank you for your continued diligence and excellence in your dealings with us, from 1992 to today! "

Barbara Dunn
Seller on West End Avenue

"Thank you very much for selling our apartment. We really appreciate all your effort that went into getting the apartment ready and most certainly the outcome – the service we got from you was top notch. Everything was seamless for us and being so far away that made all the difference to our experience. If anyone asks for a broker, we’ll certainly be sending them your way!"

Franci and Oren He
Sellers on West 88th Street

"Deanna Kory has been, in every aspect of my dealings with her, professional, personable, knowledgeable, conscientious, incredibly hard-working, capable and sensitive. I have bought and sold a fair number of homes, but no transactions have ever gone as quickly or smoothly. I was only interested in one building, and Deanna contacted me the moment an apartment that met my qualifications came on the market. After I got it (in a “best and final offer” situation), we put my apartment on the market, and I had two full price offers within 4 days. Only someone with expertise in the field and equally impressive people skills could do that. Deanna is a gift to her clients!"

Fran Samuels
Co-Dir, College Counseling at Trevor Day School

"Deanna was extremely effective in the sale of our property in a tough market. She was particularly helpful, given that we had moved overseas, and went above and beyond my expectations. Most importantly, she sold my property in time and at the right price!
I utterly recommend Deanna to anyone looking for a broker as she is professional, smart and a very nice person to deal with."

Bruno Strigini
President at Novartis Oncology

"The Deanna Kory team is a very professional residential broker who understands the market and how to accomplish the goals set by the client to get the job done. I would not hesitate to consider the team to sell our units. "

Perry Finkelman
CEO, American Development Group, LLC

"If I only had two words to describe Deanna’s skills as a real estate professional they would have to be: “extraordinarily superlative.” She, and the Corcoran team she has developed and managed over time, are truly in a league of their own. Thorough, conscientious, poised, insightful and driven to consistently exceed client expectations are just some of the qualities I experienced as a result of Deanna’s representation. I endorse Deanna without hesitation and am available at any time to provide further examples of her unique professionalism."

Charles MacLachlin
Consulting VP, Marketing Officer at 59 Souls Inc.

"We chose to work with Deanna after seeing her work representing the seller when we were buying an apartment. We worked with Deanna a few years later when we sold that apartment. Deanna is incredibly knowledgeable about the NY market, considerate of her clients’ needs and constraints, and gives excellent counsel based on sound judgment. I would (and plan to) work with her again without hesitation."

Jason Halper
Co-Head, Financial Institutions Litigation Practice at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP

"Deanna found us the perfect apartment. There was someone else already interested in our apartment. Deanna advised us what to bid, how to negotiate with that particular seller and building, recommended an attorney to us who could get the job done, went to the closing with us, which was critical, as we might not have closed without her, and was in every way instrumental in obtaining our current home. We could never thank her enough for all she did. Her set of skills far exceeds that of other brokers we have worked with, and in addition to being an extremely knowledgeable broker, she is also such a wonderful person, she is the ultimate deal maker. "

Debbie Kubiak
Attorney, Debevoise and Plimpton

"Deanna is the perfect professional: warm, thoughtful and profoundly skilled in all areas of real estate. We both bought and sold apartments with her and also benefitted from her supportive team as well. From deftly seeking out the right space and prepping a place for maximum value through the often complex worlds of applications and closings, Deanna can’t be beat in the hyper competitive world of NYC real estate."

Ann Foley

"Deanna and team are the most intelligent and professional real estate agents one could hope to work with. For our first meeting she arrived with comparables and a list of all expenses associated with both buying and selling. Her market knowledge, plus up to the moment comparables research, was fundamental to our discussion about selling price and offer price and resulted in a very quick sell at excellent price. This same insight was fundamental in our subsequent purchase. Highest marks for the most financially astute and most gracious buyer/seller experience."

Lucinda Herrick

"Deanna helped me sell my home on Central Park West where I had lived for over 30 years and simultaneously buy an apartment on West End Avenue. It was a very stressful experience for me and I could never have done it without her. Deanna is that wonderful mix of calm and creative determination. She knows about apartments before they are listed, she is connected with buildings all around the city but particularly the Upper West Side. If I ever have to move again, I wouldn’t consider using anyone else."
